I missed the kernel-image to linux-image thing!

I guess I missed something in the weekly update of my testing system.  I needed to recompile my 2.4.27 kernel (because USB mass storage suddenly broke, on which I'll post seperately if I can't figure it out).  So, I go to 'dpkg -i linux-image-2.4.27_...' and it bails because installation will overwrite a file (it turns out LOTS of files) provided by 'kernel-image-2.4.27'.  I used the --force-overwrite option to dpkg to install anyway, and it seems no harm was done.  I'm sure there was some good reason for the change, but the transition could have been made a little more transparent!
